Baroness Loses Appeal In Nazi-Era Art Case





A German baroness living in Providence is appealing a court decision forcing her to give a portrait auctioned by the Nazis to the estate of a late Jewish art dealer.

An attorney for Maria-Luise Bissonnette filed the arguments Monday with the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston.

Among other points, Bissonnette's attorney said the estate of Max Stern may have waited too long before seeking the return of the oil painting "Girl from the Sabine Mountains."
